A man has filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court against both American Airlines Inc. and SkyWest Airlines Inc., alleging negligence.
Stephen Keys says one of his pinky fingers was caught in an airline armrest mechanism for nearly an hour during a flight to Los Angeles.
SkyWest commented, “We worked with our partner American to reach out to Mr. Keys regarding his bruised finger and look forward to swiftly resolving this matter. Due to the ongoing litigation, we cannot comment further.”
The complaint alleges the injury to his finger left him unable to perform routine tasks as driving and playing with his children. It also says Mr. Keys experienced weeks of intense pain and severe emotional distress.
